Con-Confusion: Ballot language still at issue

Clout St:
There seems to be some confusion about the revised language voters are supposed to get with their ballots on the question of whether to rewrite the Illinois Constitution.

A Cook County judge and an appellate court approved "corrective" language after critics said the ballot question seemed written to encourage votes against holding a constitutional convention.

But supporters of a convention say they are hearing the new language is not being distributed statewide, and that was indeed the case in St. Clair County this week.

County Clerk Bob Delaney said Thursday that he had not been distributing the “corrective notice” because he and the county state’s attorney didn’t think the original ruling applied statewide.
Apparently different interpretations of rulings.
